As of Aug. 1, the Surgery Center at Brinton Lake became the Crozer-Keystone Surgery Center at Brinton Lake. Opened in 2006 as a joint venture between Crozer-Keystone Health System and its physician partners, the facility is now a service of Crozer-Chester Medical Center. The facility will continue to provide high-quality, efficient service for patients and their partners in southeastern Pennsylvania.
“We are delighted about this transition. We are dedicated to serving the local community with excellence in outpatient surgery and are excited for the Crozer-Keystone Surgery Center at Brinton Lake’s continued success,” said Amie Thornton, chief operating officer at Crozer-Chester Medical Center.
The state-of-the-art center is located in Suite 320 of the Crozer Medical Plaza at Brinton Lake, 300 Evergreen Drive in Glen Mills. Surgeons from more than 20 different specialties treat patients at the Center, including:
• Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery
• General Surgery
• Gynecology Surgery
• Interventional Pain Management
• Ophthalmologic Surgery
• Oral Surgery
• Orthopedic Surgery
• Pediatric Dental Surgery
• Podiatric Surgery
• Plastic/Cosmetic Surgery
• Urologic Surgery
• Urogynecologic Surgery
Staff, contacts, phone numbers, facilities, and services will remain the same at the newly named operation: 484-846-5100 (phone) and 484-846-5101 (fax). The web address will remain the same as well: www.brintonlakesurgery.com.
“The Crozer-Keystone Surgery Center features experienced surgeons and anesthesiologists who are members of the CKHS medical staff and specially trained nurses, operating room technicians and support staff who give the individualized attention required for outpatient surgery patients,” Thornton says.
“Our highly-skilled staff makes the safety and comfort of our patients a priority. Our credentialed physicians have individually served Chester and Delaware counties and the surrounding areas for many years, offering expert care in a facility that offers the latest technology available. All surgeons have completed an extensive and rigorous credentialing process and are members of the CKHS medical staff,” says Adam Hauser, M.D., anesthesiologist and medical director of the center.
Referring physicians should use the Crozer-Chester Medical Center NPI and TIN for pre-certification and referrals for surgeries [NPI: 1134212772, TIN: 23-1637191]. Carrier requirements for referrals and/or authorizations may change, so please check the requirements based on the patient’s policy, benefit level, and CPT code of the procedure being performed at a hospital outpatient department. Note that that the patient’s co-pay may be different than before, depending on the benefit coverage. Also, Crozer-Keystone requires a primary care doctor (if the patient has one) to be listed on the “scheduling sheet,” as well as the Social Security Number of the patient.
The Crozer-Keystone Surgery Center joins CKHS’s network of inpatient and outpatient surgical facilities that are available at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, Delaware County Memorial Hospital, Springfield Hospital and Taylor Hospital.
Featuring centralized pre-operative, operating and post-operative areas, the Surgery Center makes the experience convenient for patients and their physicians.
“In addition, we also make the experience convenient for companions who are waiting for the patient to have ambulatory surgery,” Thornton said.
Companions can enjoy free Internet access and coffee service in a relaxing waiting area, as well as easy access to nearby shops and restaurants at the Shoppes at Brinton Lake and the Brandywine Town Center. Parking for patients and physicians is free.
